.....By 1967, tennis had taken it's grip on a number of Marshfield
ladies who practiced diligently long after their regular practice hours
were over. The extended practice sessions paid off as the Pirates took
1st place in singles (Mary Paczesniak) and 1st (Janie Chiene and Peggy
Eddy), 2nd (twins Anne and Angie Guenther), and 3rd (Carol Hanson and
Kathy Krummel) place in doubles at the District Tournament. With
Paczesniak advancing into the semi-finals in singles and Chiene and Eddy
advancing into the semi-finals in doubles at the State Tournament, the
1967 Marshfield girls' tennis team tied with perennial tennis powerhouse
Roseburg as State High School Co-Champions, becoming the first girls'
State Championship team in Pirate history.
